Michael Jackson title hits sales milestoneBy Hanleigh Daniels 10 January 2011 | Categories: news
Ubisoft has announced that Michael Jackson The Experience has surpassed the two million mark in units sold for the Nintendo Wii, the DS as well as Sony’s PlayStation Portable (PSP) in the US, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
“Michael Jackson The Experience is a worldwide hit and offers fans the game they have been waiting for,” said Yves Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft. “As the leader in the dance game genre, our teams have worked enthusiastically to build an experience that recreates the magic worlds of Michael Jackson’s videos and performances. We’re looking forward to bringing Michael Jackson The Experience to Kinect and Move so an even bigger audience can enjoy playing the game with their friends and family too.”
“We are extremely thrilled with how people around the world are embracing and enjoying Michael Jackson The Experience,” said John Branca and John McClain, the executors of the Estate of Michael Jackson. “The passion they are showing for learning and performing Michael’s signature dance moves to the songs they have loved for years is a tribute to his amazing legacy. Families are sharing an entertainment experience that is fun, unique and energizing.”
These sales figures don’t include Japan, as the game will only be released there later this year. It was launched on 23 November 2010 in the States and 25 November in Europe, the Middle East, as well as select Asian territories.
Ubisoft will be bringing Michael Jackson The Experience to Kinect for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 as well as to the PlayStation 3’s Move motion-based gaming system on 12 April 2011 in the US and 14 April in Europe, the Middle East and certain parts of Asia. The Kinect and PlayStation Move versions of the game will include two additional tracks, Blood on the Dance Floor and I Just Can’t Stop Loving You with more additional tracks to be revealed soon.
